This marks the only place in the Hafs reading of the Quran where imala is applied. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Im%C4%81la#section_2 In the Hafs reading, you don't pronounce the vowel in the middle of "majraha" as a regular aliph. Instead, you pronounce it like the letter "A" in "fate". You should find an audio sample of the ayah by a good qari to get it ...

The pronunciation of hamzat-al-wasl is regular, and can be predicted with some basic knowledge of Arabic grammar. There are three four cases in particular: The definite prefix "al-" (ال): This is always pronounced with a fatha. Nouns in general: Any noun which starts with a hamzat-al-wasl (not including the definite "al-" mentioned above) would be ...

The first letter of the Arabic "al-" ("ال") prefix is known as a hamzat al-wasl. This can be written either as an alif with a waslah above it "ٱ", or just as an alif by itself "ا" (e.g. with no hamzah). While a regular alif (with a hamza) will always be pronounced with its own vowel as a glottal stop, a hamzat al-wasl is silent when it is preceded by a ...

You are talking about the Qiraat Styles, the way the Qari recite the Qur'an. Traditionally, there are 10 recognised schools of qira'at, and each one derives its name from a famous reader of Quran recitation. (Wiki) There haven't been any musical lessons with notes and rhythms, but they just emerged following the way Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) ...

They are identical. When you have the letter waw (و) following a tanween (تنوين), the rule is to apply idgham (إدغام). Idgham in recitation means pronunciation of both that tanween with a nasal n sound and the waw as separate letters. In the first form ('Uthmani), the tanween marks are not vertically aligned (there is a slight angle), which denotes idgham. ...

That is called hamzat al-wasl, which means that in normal cases the alif is, as you were told, silent. Some styles will write the symbol above the alif, but others will just leave the alif unmarked: It is the same either way. However, if it's at the beginning of speech, you can't just leave it silent. How it's pronounced in those cases is a bit tricky, ...

When asked whether it is mandatory to recite the Qur'an with tajwid, Shaykh Muhammad Salih al-Munajid quoted the following fatwa from Hanbali scholar Shaykh Muhammad ibn 'Uthaymin (from the collection Liqa'at al-Bab al-Maftuh): The correct view is that reading Qur’aan with the rules of tajweed is not obligatory; tajweed is only a means of making one’s ...

This is called Imala, and the word in the Hafs reading that has Imala is the Ayah in your question. It changes the"Fathah" a A sound to a "Kasra" a "e" or "i" sound, and it changes the "Alif" to a " Ya' ", so instead of saying "Majraha" you say "Majreha" or "Majriha". You can hear it from a good reciter at Qur'an Explorer, chose Abdul Basit as the reciter ...

Something similar has been mentioned. There are several reports describing the Prophets tone of recitation as going along with what was being recited. And this is actually also part of tajwid. In Sahih Muslim, the companion Hudhaifa said that one night he prayed with Rasulullah...And when he recited the verses which referred to the Glory of Allah, he ...

The Quran was written down during the time of the Prophet along with it being memorized. Rasolullah had around 40 scribes to write down whatever was recited and taught to the people. To see further on the preservation, you can read the book "Kuttaab an-Nabi" by Mohamed Mustafa al-Azami who gives all the historical evidences. As for the different dialects ...

Quran was revealed to us for our guidance. Allah says: This is the Book about which there is no doubt, a guidance for those conscious of Allah - (Quran 2:2) That is the purpose of Quran. You see, when one is reading a general book without proper pause on the punctuations and so on, it becomes difficult for the listener to follow, and might become a ...

Assalamu alaikum Youssouf, According to a fatwa in islamweb (http://fatwa.islamweb.net), there is nothing wrong in skipping a close mosque to a further one if you feel more focused in your prayer in the distant mosque (because the Imam is too fast in the closer mosque). However, reciting the fatiha after prayer and repeating the takbir of the Imam can be ...

The problem with your question is that scholars say it's not allowed to recite the Quran without at least "the odor" of tajweed, so it's not allowed to read it as you would read any text. This applies especially for somebody who know it based on verse (73:4)! Or add to it, and recite the Qur'an with measured recitation. Note that Quran has been revealed ...

The ج sign after َهُو indicates that this is a position for waqf jaa'iz (permissible pausing/rest) according the tajweed rules of riwayat Hafs 'an' Asim. This means you have the choice to pause (which is marked by a silent diacritics - sukun- in the recitation) or go ahead reciting. So if you toke this opportunity and made a pause you'll recite هُوَ ...

I just opened the Quran on my phone and I see after the 'ha' there is an silent Alif or 'Laam'(Not 100% sure). Anyway the ending letter becomes that Alif so reading the 'ha' is correct. In some other ayas there is a silent 'ya' at the end.

In Islam acts are based on intention. You didn't intend to do that so your prayer is valid. You wanted to pronounce in rightly but mispronounced it. But your intent was right. The prophet [saw] said: Narrated 'Umar bin Al-Khattab (May Allah be pleased with him), reported: Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, "The deeds are ...

It seems to me that you are neither an Arabic speaker nor have a basic level in understanding Arabic. As what you suggest would rotate an Arabic linguist in his grave if he could. Let me explain your inquiry with a focus on the linguistic part of the question: Your Example from surat al-Zalzala (99) Al-Zalazala or al-Zalzalah (both actually are examples of ...

According to the books I looked at, the meaning of صلے is given as an allowed stop but not recommended. This means you can stop if you wish but it is better to continue. Secondly, لا means "don't stop" while قف means "do stop." So it is a bit confusing that both لا and قف are used at the same time in the picture you gave. However, in my opinion, this ...

When pausing in Arabic, the last letter's vowel can be ignored and be pronounced as a stop. Meaning as if it had a sukoon on it. For example if the phrase is: إِلاَّ هُوَ The هُوَ can be pronounced as as if it was a هُوْ Similarly, if you are pausing at the end of the first ayah in Surah Fatiha, you would pronounce "رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ" as if it was "...

Strictly speaking none of these signs are part of the qur'an or the (original rasm of the) Moshaf. You must know that the qur'an is the orally transmitted word of Allah it is not a physical book. The physical book actually is what we call al-Moshaf which contains the content of the qur'an. In the original manuscript there where only letters without any ...

The Haraka you are asking about is the time consumed to read the voweled letter. It is not exactly equal to 1 second. It actually differs from 1 person to the other. Though it is taught to beginners as it is the time consumed to release and spread 1 finger from your fist. Meaning that if you are counting more than one Haraka, then simply make a fist, then ...
